Data and cyber security “Having visibility into the full infrastructure stack, from endpoint to application and everything in-between is crucial in security investigations,” said Sean Remnant, Chief Strategy Officer at Ignition Technology. Both large enterprise and SMB will be able to benefit from the latest technology" “A security analyst needs high fidelity network traffic data to complete the picture of a breach, attack or anomalous behaviour. Our partnership with Corelight provides a proven platform for on premise and cloud infrastructure traffic analysis, extending and completing the capability of Ignition’s XDR platform that includes visibility for endpoints and cloud,” Remnant adds. (XDR) Detection and Response (XDR) Detection and Response is a concept where organisations collate security telemetry from all networking and Infrastructure into a centralised big data platform to allow for incident investigation and breach response. “While it’s understood that we need data from all our sources to get a complete picture it will only be the larger, more security mature organisations that have the skills to manage it” added Remnant, while also stating, “With Ignition’s approach, both large enterprise and SMB will be able to benefit from the latest technology either by deployment of the solutions themselves or by taking it as-a-service from a trusted channel partner.”
